Isle of Skye Blended Scotch Whisky

‘Mellowed in Oak for Eight Years’ Origins in that most widely celebrated of Scottish Islands: Skye, home of the Clan Macleod

 

Premium quality 8 Years Old Blend – the recognised age of maturity for many malt whiskies and defines the age of the youngest whisky in the blend, the majority of the malts in Isle of Skye are much older.

 

An exceptionally smooth and mellow Scotch whisky containing a high proportion of carefully selected Island and Speyside Malts

 

Honey/vanilla sweet Speyside flavour allied to smoky/peaty Island influences to give a well balanced distinctive blend.

 

    "A textbook blend and an absolute must for any Islay-philes out there - in fact, a must for everybody! Your taste buds are beaten up and caressed simultaneously. One of the most enormous yet brilliantly balanced whiskies in the world" – Jim Murray (Whisky Expert),Whisky Bible 2004

 

Also available at 12, 21 and 50 Years Old

 

Isle of Skye 8 year old Blended Scotch Whisky

 

Aroma - Stunningly evocative. Deep peaty tones waft from the glass, like the reek from a crofter's lum. But there is a lot more beyond: the grains intermingle deliciously with oaky, vanilla notes and something malty and even slightly honeyed. The stuff of dreams.

 

Flavour - Sweet at first, and remarkably viscous. This seems to be the peat hanging around and there is intense barley sugar and spice. Massively flavoured. This creaminess continues for what seems hours. Remains sweet, spicy and chewy and at the end faintly nutty. The oak returns at the end.
